Discover the land of Narnia-where the everyday and the mystical mingle Do you know all there is to know about this land and its creator? - Why does the wardrobe lead to Narnia only at specific moments? - Were the children modeled after any particular people in C. S. Lewis's life? - Why did Lewis choose the animals he did, and why did he allow them the ability to talk? Such questions are explored in this riveting analysis of C. S. Lewis's magical world. Tracing through The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe chapter by chapter, Devin Brown explores fascinating symbols, hidden meanings, and easily missed details that swirl in and around Lewis's famous story. Whether you're a book or movie lover-or both-Inside Narnia will heighten your understanding of a world where the real and imaginary come together.
